Am a newbie to AnyDVD. I installed the latest version 220.127.116.11
My DVD-RW Drive is Samsung: TSSTCORP CDDVDW SH-S203D with F/W SB01
So, far there were no region code changes for my drive as I don’t use it to play DVD Movies. So 5 Changes were available in Device Manager.
I inserted my WALLE Bonus DVD to give a shot at backing it up. The Disc is marked for Region 3.
So, I changed the AnyDVD setting to emulate Region 3 and I inserted the disc in the drive. After a couple of drive led blinking and other activities the disc got detected and AnyDVD displayed the Info as follows:
The Movie playing fine.
Out of curiosity I checked the Device Manager and found that the Region code was changed to Region 3 and now only 4 changes are left.
I thought AnyDVD was to prevent this. Is this the case or am I missing something?
What went wrong? I have Windows XP SP2 with all latest patches installed. (Haven’t hopped on to SP3 due to some forums talking about some issues).
Please help me as I seem lost.[/QUOTE]
First off what was your original Region? As to SP3 problem I have it with all the latest patches and have no problem so unless you had something they had problem with the AMD or Intel CPU I can’t remember was the main gripe people had but other then that patch it should work fine. Is your burner FW the latest or not? Sometimes if you flash the firmware to the latest it should revert back to the default FW for your region and give you back the 5 changes settings again. But look at the burner site to see about that. But from what it looks you did make sure you didn’t change the region settings from device manage??? I haven’t heard of Anydvd doing such a thing to change the Device itself own region settings…
